Pizza Margherita

I used ready made pizza crust and prepared tomato sauce to make this simple and yet delicious Pizza Margherita as an after school snack for my kids recently. I used fresh mozzarella and added a few slices of fresh sweet heirloom tomatoes to the pizza. These fresh ingredients made all the difference here, what do you think? It certainly made this express pizza look and taste better I think. Try it, your kids will love it! :-)

Pizza Margherita
(Printable Recipe)


1 (9 inches) Pizza Crust
5 Tbsp Prepared Italian Plum Tomato Sauce
4 (Medium Size) Fresh Mozzarella, sliced thickly
1 Heirloom Tomato, sliced
5 Fresh Basil Leaves, torn or shreds
1 tsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Preheat oven to 425˚F.

Spread the tomato sauce evenly on the pizza crust.

Arrange mozzarella slices on top of the sauce. Then arrange the tomato slices on top of the mozzarella. Drizzle the olive oil and scatter some basil leaves. Sprinkle some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Bake the pizza for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and scatter extra basil leaves over the pizza. Serve warm.


  1. Just bumped into your blog and liked it so much. Nice collection of recipes. Would surely visit again :)

  2. We make pretty much the same pizza all of the time except we use olive oil in place of the tomato sauce. Just brush a light coating over the crust before adding the toppings. Yum!

  3. I'm glad your kids enjoyed it but it isn't a traditional Margherita Pizza. No sauce, the tomatoes are the sauce. 3 ingredients (the colors of the Italian flag) fresh tomato (red) fresh mozzarella, and I mean fresh (white), and basil leaves (green) anything else is just a pizza.

  4. I always place the sliced mozzarella in between some paper towels and put some weight on top to squeeze out the water. Otherwise, you get a soupy pizza. After I've removed most of the water, it's ready for the pizza, but don't bake it until you've sprinkled some kosher salt on each slice.

  5. Hello! I came across your blog to invite you to join me a pizza margherita cook-along! Your picture is mouth-watering. Please stop by!

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
